German Shepherd Breeding
The words German Shepherd Dog often conjure up visions of a heroic dog of film fame or a military canine doing its job alongside a soldier. While the characteristics of both are embodied in the breed, it is important to be careful about German Shepherd breeding
when selecting a new pet. The popularity of the breed has sometimes resulted in people producing puppies and dogs with only profit in mind. Ignoring stable temperament and correct conformation often leads to dogs with health and behavioral issues. The breed is a fairly modern addition to the canine world first appearing in the late 1800’s as a herding dog. Those pursuing early German Shepherd breeding
lines focused on dogs that were intelligent, loyal and had the structural integrity to handle working long hours in the outdoors.
